Tonight, Friday evening, was the launch of the Dutch translation of Michael March’s poetry collection “Half Pint”.
It was a wonderful evening.
In this collection, published in the Netherlands by De Contrabas, March quotes Kafka: “Sex is the punishment for love.” I wonder where Kafka wrote this, I assume in one of his letters.
Kafka is right. It’s sad that so many people believe that sex is the reward for love or tenderness, while obviously it’s the punishment.
But we did learn to enjoy our punishment, at least some of us.
